Billy Hughes by Donald Horne

First published as In Search of Billy Hughes, this biography of our seventh prime minister pays tribute to one of the most extraordinary men ever to walk Australia's political stage.

Donald Horne traces the rise of Billy Hughes from a bottle washer to the prime ministership; from the time his power crumbled, because of his own arrogance, to his defeat in 1922. And even then Hughes was not finished: he would make a brilliant comeback before he died in 1952 at the age of 90.

Now back in print as part of the Prime Ministers Series, Billy Hughes is as compelling and remarkable as the man himself.
